Sun In Flight Vol. Ll Spook: Vol. II Spook
SUN IN FLIGHT is tragi-comedy. Three generations of Kindlers inhabit a world lurching from Hiroshima to Woodstock to 9/11. Terror of the Bomb becomes fear of Terror. Dreamtime magic seeps into daytime reality. The wider focus is on the arms race. In SPOOK, the second volume, Cal joins the new CIA, is posted to London and marries Vik's sister, Maggie. Twins Harry and Sammy arrive in 1949. Cal, now undercover Air Force, 'guards' Fort Knox gold. He stays in touch with Cameron Sykes at the British Foreign Office and Burl Deavins, ex college roomie, ex Manhattan Project and now with Von Braun at White Sands. Burl keeps Cal posted on arms race lunacy and in 1953 they watch the DOD's atomic show near what is now Las Vegas. Dreams loom, the Oakshotts visit Louisville and Cal wangles a transfer back to London, where he joins Gorms and grows fat. The book closes with Suez and Sputnik.
